"Captain Kidd buried golden, jeweled loot, and so did Henry Morgan, Lafitte added his share in the Louisiana swamps. Then there are the drowned galleons, holding the salty, coral-grown treasures of the Incas. And don't forget the ancient hoards of long-forgotten races who worked in gold, silver, and platinum. This book tells you where this treasure is waiting under the dark earth, the restless sea . Waiting for someone with the vision, the courage, the guts it takes to go and get it!"
